Ok I’m over my elite mid disappointment. Only took me a day.
The Sonz has satisfied me for now
Love Gibcus already, make space for me on the hype train
Be fascinating to see which group he trains with over summer.
Strong rumours they’re going to play him as a forward.
Re: Pick 9: Josh Gibcus
Leigh Montagna says: “There’s a little birdie saying maybe Richmond are flirting with Gibcus as a forward. We know they didn’t take a tall forward in this draft and we know Tom Lynch and Jack Riewoldt are closer to the end than the start of their careers and they’ve lost Coleman-Jones and Mabior Chol. Maybe keep an eye over the pre-season on whether Gibcus trains with the forwards. We know he can be an elite intercept defender if need be and can always go back in time, but they’ve got Noah Balta and while they’ve still got Grimes and a few others maybe they can experiment with him forward.
Kevin Sheehan says: “I haven’t seen Gibcus forward but he’s a wonderful athlete and a coachable athlete. We’ve seen so much of that over time where we think they’re such and such but they change as they get into the professional era with the clubs.”
The best type!!
Apparently played a lot of forward as a junior.
Another interesting thing is there seems to be total confusion about his height.
Ranging from 195-197cm depending which article you read.
